Our Ethos & Vision

‘We believe in the power of education to improve lives – and the world’

This statement is at the heart of the John Taylor story. It is a compelling story, and one which we hope you will wish to experience. We are driven to ensure that our community can realise its true potential through learning.

This is our mission. To that end, we provide the experiences, resources, structures and systems to enable all to engage, all to progress, all to achieve.

Through the opportunities that our Multi-Academy Trust offers, we extend our mission beyond the school in which it originated.

What makes us successful?

  • Our commitment to ensure learning is at the heart of all we do

Keeping “the main thing, the main thing” – prioritising our people, time, energy and funding to the improvement of the educational experience – both formal and informal – we provide.

  • A passion for excellence

Only comparing ourselves with the best.  When finding it, seeking to match and then surpass it.

  • Restlessness and curiosity

Looking for opportunity to be involved and to learn from new experiences.

  • Courage to innovate

Leading change – in teaching and learning, curriculum development, organisational structures.

  • Tenacity and resilience

Holding to our mission in times of turbulence, and remaining resolute until we achieve what we set out to do.

  • Collegiality

Listening to others, sharing with others, learning from others
